If there is standing water in your basement after a heavy rainfall, it is not good. If this water is present, it will keep you from having the ability to store items in the basement and even keep you from turning that space into another room. Excess water and humidity will eventually harbor mold and mildew which can ultimately lead to life threatening health problems. If there is standing water in your basement, you should contact us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the issue and help create a basement waterproofing system which will prevent water coming in and prevent any additional damage from happening. This system will stop the growth of mold as well as make it so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into viable storage space, a second family room, or even an extra bedroom.More Info

If your homes got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters holed up in them. They are known for having excess moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Unstable or settling concrete paths are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Whether you've got a large driveway or slab that is sinking or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services will help level the section and keep it from being a problem again while preventing the cost and working with the hassles of removing it and replacing it. We have two primary services to implement the repairs. The first uses expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sinking slab that carefully and safely levels the concrete to it's original location. This process works so well, we are able to perform leveling on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second service involves a unique system of epoxy and sealing to patch the crumbling or breaking concrete to increase the strength and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
